Karim Benzema - 96 - TOTS
4.5
Big Benz
By RodrigoisGod, 28-07-2019

This card is really nice to use. Big Benz doesn't really live up to his 6ft 1 stature and 99 strength but makes up for it with shooting, attacking runs and speed. I have to say I was surprised about how good Benzema is. I bought him as a big striker, someone who can hold the ball up, but also have enough pace to penetrate the opposition defence, and he did more than that. His runs in behind were second to none, he was getting plenty on one on ones with the keeper and usually scoring them. Also his shooting his mad. The guy doesn't miss. When he shoots he almost always gets it on target (in a good scoring position), and if it is placed right, gets it past the keeper. Benzema's first time shots are deadly, in and around the box he doesn't miss. Anyone looking for a affordable, value for money striker should go in for Benz, he's everything a striker should be.

  • Brilliant shooting
  • feels a lot faster than his card says
  • not clunky
  • makes excellent runs in behind
  • holds the ball up well
  • Doesn't seem as strong as his card says
  • Doesn't win the ball in the air a lot
  • His positioning inside the box isn't the best

Benzema:

Trust me. Get this card. I have only played 6 games with him but in division 1 of division rivals and I tell you, he is something else. I have previously tried UCL TOTGS griezmann, aguero, etc. He is a combination of these two on steroids. I have scored 15 goals with 3 assists. Incredible finishing. Brilliant long shots. Decent Dribbling. Surprisingly good passing. Good enough physical (scored 3 headers). To be fair however...

Benzema? WOW!

When I first saw these cards I needed to have one. The card art is probably one of the best I've seen. I bought Benzema or 130,000 and it was worth every coin, when I first saw this card the first thing that came to my mind was "Why Benzema?". IRL I think Benzema is grossly overrated but for a special card that upgrades every stage Real gets to is 100% worth the coins. He is probably one of the most fun strikers that I have...

End game playmaker

So your main question is: is he worth doing? My anwser would be - of course. For around 120k you are getting an end game player rated 96 on CF with maestro chem. style. I managed to lower the cost of Benzema with some untradables to only 40k. First thing I did was moving him to a CAM role in a 4-3-3(4) tactic. The main aspect I directly noticed was his ball control - it is like he has a glue on his feets. Because of that he...
